Mission and objectives

The Arab Institute for Human Rights was created in 1989, it is an initiative by the Arab Organisation for Human rights and Arab Lawyers Union and the Tunisian League for the Defense of Human Rights.
The Arab Institute for Human rights works in collaboration with several national, regional, and international organisations, both governmental and nongovernmental. The institute collaborates with different networks in the Arab region, many of which are feminist networks. In the past, it worked on training the Aysha network's organisations in coordination with the Salma network, which is a feminist network that fights against gender inequalities. The institute carried out many activities to enhance the capacities of women and to produce academic studies and seminars aiming to improve the status of women.

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

The institute participated in several international meetings and events on women's s rights like the Beijing Conference and in organising an Arab preparatory seminar for that conference.
The Institute currently implements a regional project to strengthen the role of women in trade unions and political parties, in coordination with the AMINA forum to enhance the expertise and capacity of its organisations in using the mechanisms for the protection and promotion of women's rights.
